SPI Fish Killer Charters offers guided fishing trips around the waterways of South Padre Island, TX. Whether it’s exploring the inshore waters for some Reds or Specks, or the chase further out to get Kings, Grouper, and Snapper, SPI Fish Killer Charters has you covered.

You will be fishing alongside Paco Hinjosa, a local fishing guide around these fisheries. He knows where the fish are and what technique to use to make the most out of your trip. Paco will take you to hot spots in search of prime fish of the area. You will get to try a variety of techniques, depending on the fish you want to target.

Your vessel for the day is a 25’ Panga center console. She is powered by a 150 HP Mercury outboard engine and is rigged with the navigational gear. The boat features plenty of space to fish safely with comfort. It’s all about a smooth and safe ride. When coming for an inshore trip, Paco can accommodate up to six people, whereas the offshore waters are good for a pack of four. The boat features high sides and a non-slip surface which makes it safe for kids of all ages. Anglers of all skillsets are welcome to join the adventure.

When fishing around the bay, you can try drifting, wade fishing, structure, top water, or going after bottom fish, using either artificial lures or bait, depending on what works better on the selected day. You can expect to get Red Drum, Snook, Flounder, and Speckled Trout.

Further out, you can try trolling for Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack or go bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper or Tripletail.

Make sure to bring a valid fishing license, snacks and drinks. All the tackle, bait, and ice are supplied, as are the rods and lures. You will get your catch cleaned, and can later have a tasty meal.

Captain Paco was very knowledgeable of the type of fishing we were doing.  He worked extremely hard at getting us to places where we could catch fish.  He was also so patient with a few of us that were first time fisherman.  We would certainly book another bay fishing trip with him.

If you are on the fence about booking with Captain Paco Hinojosa, don’t be. Book with him now.

I have been on numerous guided fishing and hunting trips all over Texas and he is one of the good ones. From his patience to his knowledge, I can’t speak highly enough of the overall experience. We will be back and we will book with him.
